    Robocopy Gone Wrong

    Hello everyone;

    While running a robocopy by hand to make sure that our new file server is up to date i managed to run it but with the options preced by \ instead of / which has lead to me having the following problem

    i now have two folders in the root of my file system called "staff" one of which actualy contains all their data and one which contains the folders copyall, E and Z one below the other.

    Now if we look at the folders via the command line it turns out ther one is called "Staff" and the other is called "staff " however when you list the folders they both say they have the staff data in them.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get rid of these folders which refuse to delete.

    Thanks

    .adam

    Try this little utility,
    It cleans up all sorts of troublesome files/folder without the need to resort to command line tools and boot cd's.
    Solved many a problem for me in the past.

    The free version is limited to a single file/folder deletion at a time but it's worth a try.
